Northwestern juniors and seniors can be selected as a Junior Scholar to work with a professor on research or another scholarly project. If selected, you’ll earn a stipend, and your experience could lead to recognition as a contributor on a professional presentation or publication. It’s also great preparation for the intensive professor-student collaboration that is common in graduate school.
Junior Scholars may assist faculty by:
- Gathering and writing material to be used in new courses
- Designing new experimental protocols for science labs
- Participating in a professor’s on-going natural or social science research
- Reading and commenting on a professor’s book draft
If you're interested in becoming a Junior Scholar, talk to your adviser or one of your professors.
